Did I Just Walk Onto a Movie Set at 14258 Savannah Pass?

When I walked into their house for the first time I couldn’t help but question the truth about whether or not they lived there at all.

The front entrance was grand, with tall ceilings, a walnut grand piano in the formal living area, and a chandelier hanging right above it. Coming from a historical cottage home built in 1942, this 2006 home sure showcased some seriously high ceilings. Another surprise I came to was when I realized not one single light was on in the house, yet it was completely lit by the immaculate large windows at eye level and up high! As the young couple walked me to their dining area, I was again graciously surprised by the plethora of storage, cherry cabinet space, and almost untouched granite.

Was this home a stage for some kind of weird business I have only seen on CSI? Am I on some kind of reality TV prank show? Honestly, not even a strand of carpet in their living area was out of place and the colors of the walls and freshness of the clean tile just didn’t seem to make sense.

The brewing coffee opened my mind a little, so finally I began to feel a little more trustworthy of their living in this perfect home. Sitting down to drink my first cup, the three of us sat at their dining table and I almost couldn’t stop myself from staring at the living room, which too was decorated perfectly, with couches cozily situated around their glistening white fireplace and completely unsoiled carpet.

“We are both engineers.”

Oh! It all made sense! This beautiful home was being lived in by two wonderfully pleasant left brain, linear, professionals! No wonder it was so immaculate. My right-brain, artist, collector personality was so envious of this museum kept home.

After completing the tour of the three bedrooms and two and a half bedroom home, I fell in love with the upstairs loft and the huge windows facing out over San Antonio’s Hill country.

Do I dare leave my neighborhood and buy my own listing? No! I couldn’t! Maybe, I could! This beautiful home is hard to resist with all of its wonderful amenities, and it is only a 3  minute walk to Chef Jason Dady’s restaurant, Bin555!

I’ll save it for you! Check out my listing at the Enclave at Silverhorn on 14258 Savannah Pass, priced to sell!

A House-full of Chicken ‘n Waffles & Poems

When my two very good friends and neighbors asked me to list their house in Olmos Park Terrace, I was pretty bummed that Erika and I would be loosing our community garden buddies. Not only that, but these two lovebirds can cook up some serious dinners and brunch! Once for a birthday, we grubbed down on some spicy chicken and waffles right in this exact house they wanted me to sell!

I gave in and knew this beautiful home would be on the market for just a flash! The perfect poet or artist would take a good look at this house, with a custom made cedar porch, brightly colored walls, exposed interior brick and newly redone original hardwood floors and write us a check!

Once it hit the market, I was flooded with calls and showings. A few showings in, I received a call from a poet who was looking for a home but hadn’t seen this one yet! Once we walked her in, she fell in love. Yes, my heart was still beating for my neighbors who would soon be leaving us, but I knew that my beloved community of Olmos Park Terrace and myself could always use another poet!

All went perfectly well and this beautiful cottage became blessed with lyrical words resonating through the halls!
